On current master (6af31fd71ff1a403c199c479577bcc145a547db1) indentation 
of C/C++ files sometimes doesn't work. I've bisected it: commit 
"9022df7027 Optimise c-parse-state for large buffers with few (if any) 
braces." introduced this behavior.

This is how to reproduce: check out 
9022df70270243f211c54ccd66800320148b8434, and execute "emacs -Q 
xdisp.c". Jump to line 2989 with M-g M-g 2989, move the cursor to the 
end of line of "Lisp_Object retval;", and press enter. The cursor will 
be moved to the correct place (correctly indented, cursor will be placed 
below the 'L' character of the previous line). Then push enter at end of 
line of "va_list ap;". For me, cursor will jump to the beginning of the 
line, it won't be indented. If I keep pressing enters, the next failure 
will be at "va_end (ap);". I'm not sure whether this exact steps 
reproduces for everyone, but it happened me 5 of 5 trials. If I don't 
press enter at the first line ("Lisp_Object retval;"), the problem 
doesn't happen for any of this function lines. But it will happen for 
somewhere else, if I keep trying (move around the file, press enter at 
random places: if will fail sooner or later).

For my configuration (without -Q), this problem happens quite frequently 
during editing C++ code.

I tried following your recipe (the lines in xdisp.c have since moved
around a bit), but was unable to reproduce the issue.

Can you still reproduce it on your end?

Thanks,

Hello, Basil, Géza and Konstantin.

Sorry I missed this bug report in December, and thanks, Basil, for
drawing it to my attention.

I can reproduce it easily on the indicated commit, and I have found
where the problem is.  It's in the handling of the c-state-cache (the
cache which tracks the positions of certain
braces/brackets/parentheses).  Fixing it could be quite tricky,
particularly given the need to retain optimisation for the case that the
above commit "fixed".

I am fairly, but not absolutely, sure that this is the same bug as
46400, but the bug scenario here is easier to reproduce than the other
one, so I will concentrate on this bug first.  Maybe we can join the bug
reports later.

Hi all,

>> Can you still reproduce it on your end?

I'm using a ~3-week-old native-comp branch, this bug (#45375) doesn't 
happen anymore for me.

Note that the bisect gave a different commit for #46400, so maybe the 
issues are different, even though the symptoms are very similar (same?).

Thank you for looking at this!
Geza

The bug was caused by an error in the handling of a cache (the
"c-state-cache" which tracks the position of certain
braces/brackets/parenthese).  I can assure you the error is still there,
even if it isn't currently triggering very often.

In bug #46400, I think Konstantin's bisecting threw up the wrong commit,
since cache bugs tend to be very slippery to pin down.

> Thank you for looking at this!

A pleasure!  I intend to commit the patch below in a few days time, if I
don't hear back from anybody that it's giving trouble.  This patch fixes
the bug when applied to that commit from December
(9022df70270243f211c54ccd66800320148b8434).  It should apply cleanly to
master.

Actually, I was mistaken on this front - the apostrophe had nothing to do
with it.

It was indeed a bug in the c-state-cache handling, and I now have a patch
to fix it.  After applying the patch, the `test' function no longer
produces a newline without indentation.  There is something complicated
going on with `undo', so that `test' sometimes reports there is no more
undo data, but the indentation left on new lines is always correct.

As I said above, I intend to commit the patch below in a few days time.
Please feel free to apply it (to master) and test it out.  I would be
happy to hear of anything to do with this bug which is still not working.
